Ongoing industrial land supply issues, coupled with strong demand across the Fraser Valley, are presenting some unique opportunities for land owners – that don’t require selling.
These opportunities include securing a long-term tenant for a build-to-suit facility. Securing a long-term tenant in advance equates to securing favourable financing, without requiring an additional cash outlay to pay for construction. There is also the potential to receive cashback through takeout term financing.
A recent transaction we brokered in West Abbotsford is one example of this. Representing the landlord, we designed a deal structure that achieved their client’s goal of retaining ownership of the property, which had been in the family for multiple generations, while creating an investment asset with positive cash flow, providing passive income for the landowner and their family. More information regarding this transaction can be found at this link.
If you are a land owner looking to retain ownership of your property while adding significant value, we would be happy to discuss the creative opportunities available in today’s market, please contact us anytime.
